Here is the latest update from Alfreton Town from the Alfreton Football Club’s website.

Reds begin trio of huge home games with visit of the Nash

Alfreton Town begin a trio of absolute huge home fixtures that will likely make or break their play off ambitions in National League.
A maximum haul of six points over the Easter Bank Holiday has injected some serious impetus to the Reds playoff hopes as Billy Heath’s side sit in fifth place with four games to play this campaign.
A hard fought 1-0 success over Rushall Olympic on Good Friday was followed up with an absolutely superb 2-0 win away at full time Chester on Easter Bank Holiday Monday. A double from centre back colossus Kennedy Digie to take his season tally to seven goals secured a first win against the Seals in 12 meetings spanning a whole decade.
The last win, in March 2014 thanks to a Shaun Harrad penalty moved Alfreton to their highest ever position of second in the Conference Premier.
Alfreton’s maiden win against Chester in National North was thoroughly deserved and on another day could and maybe should have been via a wider margin and Chester would have had few complaints. George Cantrill and Jordan both denied by the woodwork after fierce shots. It’s hard to overstate how good a victory it was for the Reds who worked themselves into the ground to a man to beat Full Time opposition in the Seals.
Back to back clean sheets and six huge points is just what the doctor ordered ahead of the final three home games of the season.
Alfreton have lost all their matches this season against their remaining opponents starting with the visit of Curzon Ashton to the Impact on Saturday.
Curzon have been going great guns themselves in recent weeks and come into the fixture off the back of a moral boosting 2-0 home win against another in-form outfit in the play off mix in South Shields. The Nash arrive in Derbyshire level on points with the Reds having played a game more.
Curzon will be a stern test for Alfreton’s strong home record with the Greater Manchester side having been defeated only four times on their travels this season.
Ofton are ten home games unbeaten in all comps and know that three home wins will probably all but secure a play off berth come the end of the season on April 20.
Tickets for the fixture can be purchased online or on the gate at the Impact Arena

Parking at the Impact Arena is incredibly limited. We recommend 
the pay and display parking on Rogers Lane, DE55 7FF and also at Severn Square, DE55 7BT – both are a five to ten minute walk to and from the Impact Arena.
Please be considerate of residents on the estate next to the arena, particularly Connaught Court, Bentley Close and North Street. We ask supporters to avoid parking in the residential areas around the ground and instead ask that you follow the advice and park in the pay and display car parks.
